Parent & Family Resources
At the Center for Career Engagement, we realize the critical role you play in your children's professional development. We ask for your support in encouraging your student to take advantage of our resources and programs.
We recommend that students come to see us early in their college career. But we are also happy to meet with them at any point during their time here at Gettysburg and offer assistance at every stage. Our partnership with students includes everything from early guidance in choosing a major to support in making advanced career transitions long after graduation.
Our resources encompass counseling appointments, panels and speakers, resume and cover letter assistance, graduate school application advice, networking opportunities, interview preparation, and various online career planning and job search tools. To find out more about what we offer, please explore this web site and encourage your children to do the same.
We hope you’ll be an active supporter in your children's career development process. While they seek independence financially, emotionally, and personally, they rely on your input. We encourage you to share in decision-making conversation, help them network with friends and family members, and inspire them to expand their options.
We invite you to partner with the Center in other ways too. You may wish to offer your expertise for students interested in informational interviews, as a guest speaker or panelist at one of our events, in a hosting capacity for job shadow or externship opportunities, or considering our students for job and internship opportunities in your organization.
